SUPPORTING CERVICAL CANCER PREVENTION ROADSHOW IN GLASGOW
IMPORTANCE OF CERVICAL James Kelly MSP supports cervical cancer prevention Roadshow in Glasgow
This week I supported Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust’s first ever cervical cancer prevention Roadshow. The Be Cervix Savvy Roadshow is in Glasgow from 20-31st March and aims to raise much needed awareness about cervical cancer and how to prevent it.
Cervical screening provides the best protection against cervical cancer yet the number of women attending this potentially life-saving test in Scotland is at a 10 year low and Glasgow has the lowest attendance rate across Scotland. This needs to change. I am proud to support Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust in their efforts to raise awareness of cervical cancer and how it can be prevented. It is vital more women understand the signs of cervical cancer and how the HPV vaccination and cervical screening can reduce risk of the disease.
